When in Denver

Traveling west the streets signs are all Native Tribes. Life in the city.

“Native People remember and memorialize the struggles of their ancestors at Sand Creek, Washita, and Wounded Knee, places now sanctified because of those sacrifices.” “Every society needs these kinds of sacred places because they help instill a sense of social cohesion in the people and remind them of the passage of generations that have brought them to the present. A society that cannot remember and honor its past is in peril of losing its soul.”

-Vine Deloria, Jr.

The Sand Creek Massacre: profound, symbolic, spiritual, controversial, a site unlike any other in America.

As 675 cavalrymen came around a prairie bend, the camps of Chiefs Black Kettle, White Antelope, and Left Hand lay in the valley before them.  Chaotic, horrific, tumultuous, and bloody, the events of November 29, 1864 changed the course of history. (cited from Sand Creek Massacre Historical site)
